Call for Papers - Reproductive Health Matters
Vol 9. No. 17, May 2001 Theme: By and for young women
I am pleased to announce a call for papers for the next issue of the
journal Reproductive Health Matters (RHM). RHM is an international,
peer-reviewed journal that comes out twice a year in English, with
abstracts also in French and Spanish (192pp per issue). Each issue
focuses on a main theme and also contains topical papers on other as-
pects of sexual and reproductive health.
The May 2001 issue will focus on sexual health and reproductive
health and rights issues of particular relevance to young women
around the world. We are seeking submissions that are: written by
young women, co-authored with young women and/or are about young
women -- papers that would be of interest to young women as well as
to those of us who are not so young.
Several RHM editorial advisory board members are already working with
small groups of young women to help them to prepare papers on topics
they are working on, at their request. We would be happy to try to
arrange this support for other young women who want it. Please write
to the editor with a proposal for a paper (send a 200-300 word sum-
For those who are "not so young" who are planning to submit papers,
we would like to encourage, where possible, the use of participatory
methodologies for carrying out research, interpreting data, writing
up and reviewing papers that involve young women, including those who
have been the subjects of research themselves.
We are interested in submissions in the usual range of papers we nor-
mally publish: papers reporting original research; papers analysing
aspects of current research, policy, service delivery; papers on re-
search methodology; review papers; letters to the editor and
Finally, if you are aware of any excellent papers on this theme in
languages other than English, ones which have had limited or no cir-
culation internationally that you think others would benefit from
reading in English, we would like to know about them (with a copy if
possible and/or a full reference).
RHM seeks submissions with women-centred perspectives on subjects of
cross-national interest and relevance. Our author/submission guide-
lines are attached. The themes and tables of contents of past issues
can be found on our website (see below). A sample issue can also be
ordered via our website.
The May 2001 journal issue is for RHM's regular readership. Copies
will also be sent to young women's organisations and organisations
that work with young women around the world.
Submissions are due on 1 December 2000 but will be accepted into the
first part of January 2001 (and sometimes a tiny bit later -- by ar-
rangement with the editor). Maximum word limit is 5000 words. Please
follow submission guidelines as attached.
Submissions and queries about submissions should be sent to:
